Juwi Solar Installation in Sandusky, Ohio

juwi solar inc (JSI) has commenced construction of a 12 megawatt (MW) solar power plant in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. When completed, the Wyandot Solar Energy Generation Facility is expected to generate approximately 15.8 million kilowatt hours of electrical energy per year. In June 2009 AEP Ohio executed an agreement to purchase all renewable energy and associated renewable energy certificates generated from the facility over a 20-year period.

JSI has also begun construction of another solar power plant located in Jacksonville, Florida. This facility is rated at 15 MW and when completed is expected to generate approximately 22.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, thereby avoiding an annual output of over 16,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide. In May 2009 the municipally-owned utility JEA agreed to purchase all renewable energy and RECs generated from the facility over a 30-year period.

In September of 2009, affiliates of PSEG Solar Source LLC acquired JSI’s ownership rights in the Ohio and Florida project companies, including its rights under the power purchase agreements with AEP in Ohio and JEA in Florida.

juwi has also recently completed a 2.15 solar power plant located near the Mars Snackfood headquarters in Hackettstown, New Jersey. The 2.15 MW solar power plant, which was designed and built by JSI, is one of the largest free-field PV installations in New Jersey.

juwi solar Inc., based in Boulder, Colorado, is a developer and turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contractor of solar power plants throughout North America. JSI is a majority-owned corporation of juwi Holding AG, of Germany, which ranks among Europe’s leading renewable energy companies.
